, auto sales were up 13% last month from a year before. among the u.s. automakers, ford sales were unchanged, g.m.'s were up 1.5%, chrysler reported a 12% increase. there hasn't been enough good news like that on the economy. the recovery, of course, is painfully slow and one of the biggest reasons is the recession in europe. the 27 countries of the european union add up to the world's-largest economy, but they're reporting record unemployment. in spain, unemployment among young people is 50%. mark phillips went to bars low that to see what happens when an economy goes into freefall. >> reporter: spain can be a deceptive place. in the early autumn sunshine and in the markets groaning with foodstuffs it's difficult to tell this is a country with a collapsing economy and unemployment rate of 25% that threatens to take the rest of europe and maybe even the united states economy down with it. but wait until they close up at barcelona's boqueria market and follow the porters out back to where they dump the trash and you get a different impression. in spain these days, one person's garba

evening. in the weeks before his death, u.s. ambassador chris stevens sent the state department several requests for increased security for diplomats in libya. stevens and three other americans were killed this past september 11 in a terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and, in a separate attack that same night on a safe house where the consulate staff had been evacuated. stevens' memos were obtained by the house oversight and government reform committee, which is investigating the attacks, and our sharyl attkisson got ahold of the memos today. >> reporter: ambassador stevens personally pressed for strengthened security in a series of cables to state department headquarters in washington. on july 9, 2012, stevens sent a request for extension of temporary duty personnel. that refers to a 16-man military temporary security team with expertise in counterterrorism. they were set to leave in august but stevens asked to keep them through mid-september. on august 2, six weeks before he died, stevens requested protective detail bodyguard positions, saying the added guards "will fi

: that last word, "capability," which he uses on his campaign web site, significantly shortens the time before iran would reach romney's red line. his campaign refuses to specify what he means by "capability," but the term usually refers to iran's stockpile of enriched uranium. israeli prime minister netanyahu told the u.n. his own red line would come next spring or summer when iran is expected to have enriched enough uranium to build a bomb. president obama insists iran has not yet made a decision to go for the bomb and even with enough enriched uranium would still need a year or more to build one. >> america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. >> reporter: an aide to romney says the governor also believes there is still time to pressure iran into giving up its nuclear program but not as much time as the president believes. >> pelley: david, thank you. there are almost 90,000 americans fighting in afghanistan tonight. both candidates agree nearly all of them should be home by the end of 2014. but are the afghans ready to fi
